"This recipe is fantastic! Every time I take it somewhere, people ask me for the recipe. For the cheese sprinkle, you can use 1/2 of an envelope of dry cheese mix from a macaroni and cheese boxed mix, if you'd like!"

This recipe is easy and fantastic! My family devoured this cheese ball in about 20 minutes (just a few hours after Thanksgiving dinner)! I'm making it again at Christmas!

We enjoy any type of cheeseball and really liked the flavor on this one. Thanks for sharing.

This cheese ball recipe is awesome. I had never made one before. Will definitely make again. I halved the recipe and made one ball.

This is so yummy and easy to make. Everyone loved it. Mmm mmm mmm.
